The XLM cryptocurrency has already stepped out of the list of the top 10 cryptocurrencies on coinmarketcap; she continued to experience the decline in her daily trading volume. At the time of reporting, the coin holds the 12th largest spot with a market cap of $ 1,156,112,429. It is trading at $ 0.057565 with the price increasing 0.15 percent in the last 24 hours. Granted, the coin shows a fight.
Whale movements in the crypto industry are no longer a surprise these days as such transactions are caught quite often. Just recently, on September 11th, Whale Alert discovered the transfer of $ 1 billion worth of Bitcoin transactions to a single wallet that was believed to be a gigantic move of bitcoins into an unknown wallet.
Stellar and Ripple
Stellar is a blockchain network founded by former Ripple CTO Jed McCaleb. With both companies offering similar services, Ripple and Stellar are referred to as competing giants. With that in mind, Stellar recently hired Cell co-founder Mike Kennedy as CEO of Interstellar, Stellar’s division that develops payment protocols on the Stellar Network.
With Interstellar’s new CEO with years of experience in the digital payments industry, Stellar aims high and is likely to face Ripple’s continued endeavors in the fintech industry. He’s expressing an interest in joining Interstellar, says Mike;
“Among other things, Interstellar will identify gaps between liquidity and market-making and intervene and fill these gaps.”
“I think programmable money, digital assets, and digital tokens are the future. They allow for faster, cheaper and more efficient money transfer than the old traditional way of doing things. “
In addition, the whale movement related to Stellar is not the first of its kind. Not so long ago, Stellar founder Jed McCaleb was in the top crypto media bulletins. It’s worth noting that Jed McCaleb’s wallet address allegedly received $ 26 million in XRP from Ripple.
This news was not well received by the community; Few users have blown Ripple for transferring 100 million XRP to Jed McCaleb when the company’s native token XRP hit lower lows with no sign of responsible recovery.
